HgB A1C Lab Testing (Blood Glucose / Sugar)


Worried that you might be diabetic? Or do you just need a routine check of your blood glucose levels? Then a visit to any of our labs in Baton Rouge or surrounding parishes for a test can get you same-day answers. Whether a doctor has asked you to get an A1C, or you just want to have one done, we're ready to help.

 

Why People Usually Get an A1C:


An A1C is a common blood test that shows what your average blood sugar level has been for the last two to three months. The test is usually given to either diagnose Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, or to help diabetics monitor their blood sugar levels beyond a day-to-day basis.

 

A1C Used to Diagnose Diabetes:

 

Sometimes an A1C is done as part of an overall health checkup. But it's often done if someone shows signs of diabetes, or high blood sugar. A few symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Fatigue (feeling tired)

  • Increased thirst

  • Increased urination

  • Infections that heal slowly

  • Blurred Vision

The sooner you're tested for diabetes, the sooner you can seek treatment if you discover you're diabetic. And the sooner you seek treatment, the better you can avoid possible organ damage, or other long-term problems. You may find that it's better to know now rather than later if you need treatment.

 

Routine A1C Testing for Diabetics:

 

If you've already been diagnosed with diabetes, an A1C is a common way to monitor your blood sugar over the course of a few months. You may already know that having glucose levels too high over a long period of time can cause major health problems. That includes vision problems, nerve damage, kidney problems, and cardiovascular system issues.

 

The American Diabetes Association recommends that you test your A1C at least twice a year.  People recently diagnosed with diabetes may be ordered to take it more often than that. This test can help your doctor know whether or not your diabetes treatment is working, or if needs to be adjusted.
